    Reuse, Repurpose, Revamp

    in Entertainment

    This week we're getting back to the basics! Sometimes 'new and improved' doesn't mean 'better than the old.' Examples like the current trend back to wood and charcoal for grilling, or using found and refurbished parts during construction indicate that we're all still willing to learn from the past.  Instead of throwing things away and buying new, there is a second thought of "Can I reuse this?" Lets talk about how you've done this at home and where we see the trend taking DIY. Join us!

    EDU652 - Topics as a Learning Activity

    in Education

    This is the last assignment for my EDU652:Instructional Design & Delivery Class.  This episode is about Topics.  The writer has learned that an instructional design and delivery topic is a learning object with a title and content (Horton, 2013).  It is short enough to be specific to a single subject or answer a single question, but long enough to make sense on its own and be authored as a unit.  A topic is the basic unit of authoring and of reuse (Horton, 2012).  A document may contain one topic or multiple topics, and a document type may support authoring one or many kinds of topics (Horton, 2012).  However, regardless of where they occur, all topics have the same basic structure and capabilities.  Books, PDF files, Websites, and help sets, for example, can all be constructed from the same set of underlying topic content, although there may be some topics that can only be delivered one way(oasisopen.org, 2005).

    I just want to thank Dr. Deb Moerland for being such an awesome instructor.  Dr. Moerland you've been a real blessing.  I hope we cross paths again!
